    Hi Rachel—cousin Emily here. Saw recent FB pics of A&A wedding. Wondering if you’re venturing to Mt. Zion this year? We’re going back for about 10 days. It would be funny to see you there—especially since we’re closer distance wise when we’re both home! 🙂 Would love to catch up with you and meet Lee—any chance of an Oregon visit in your future? I would say we’d come to Alaska, but I’m afraid my husband might never want to leave…and I like Oregon.
    Blessings to you–
    Emily Pfaff (Beidler)
    PS—Did you know we bought Mom’s house? She now lives with us! She would love to see you too!
